Diwali Feast continued

Khajoor Mithai (like Prashant corner's):

Grind (preferably) Majdool dates in the food processor to a coarse paste. Chop Almonds, pistachios and cashew nuts into fairly big pieces (one almond into 2-3 pieces only). Roast them slightly on a low flame or in the oven. Head some ghee in the kadai and fry the date paste in it, for a short while. Add the nuts, and set in a greased plate.

Chakli (Bombay mummy's recipe):
Take rice flour, add a small amount of Besan, some sesame seeds, salt, red chilli powder and roasted cumin powder to it. Mix well. Now add softened butter (almost muthi padtu mon). Add yoghurt and water and knead a soft dough. Make chakli's with the mold on plastic sheets and fry in hot oil on a low flame.

All this treat making business is taking a toll. I'm going to finish up with a few kaju katli tonight and then call it a day. There's so much more to be done...!! Rangoli, Mehendi, Diyas..
